Raigarh Power Project ( ACB)

Raigarh Power Project ( TRN/ ACB) is a proposed 600 MW coal based thermal power plant promoted by ACB India at Raigarh district in Chhattisgarh, India

The project is sponsored by ACB (India) Ltd. On its website in 2011, the company stated that the first 300MW unit will be commissioned is September 2013 and the second unit is December 2013. The proposed power station would be located at Bhengari, Nawpara, Katangdih and Khokhrama, in Ghargoda Tehsil, in Raigarh Distt, in  Chhattisgarh in India.

The project has received environmental clearance and has made an agreement with South Eastern Coalfields Ltd for coal. In November 2011, the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract was awarded to BGR Energy Systems.

A 2013 ACB (India) report lists the plant as under construction and planned for commissioning in FY 2014-5. The report states 390 MW will be sold to PTC India through a long term PPA. About 5% of the power will be sold to Chhattisgarh state power utility.

As of 2015 the company’s website states that the proposed commissioning date of the first unit is March 2015 and the second unit September 2015.
